The price query is the basis for all price calculations against freight contracts in softlogs. The functionality is available both as an APP as a pure support function for order registration, or as a REST API that can be called directly from the order system.
The advantage of using this function for the price request is that we record all requests and check them against previous requests versus actual freight costs. This way you will receive a warning if there has previously been a large deviation on a similar transport. A known problem with this is that you do not have detailed information on packaging / volume when registering the order.
*API = an other system do a request to the prize database *APP = webside where a user can ask the prize database.
